Racist Frat Boy Chant Would Be A Hit If Kanye Sang it, Says Rush Limbaugh

On Wednesday, Morning Joe hosts Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski made asses out of themselves by suggesting that the racist chant sung by frat boys at the University of Oklahoma was actually the fault of black people themselves for writing rap songs with the n-word in them. As one might imagine, this did not go…

Rush Limbaugh Has Giant Man-Baby Tantrum About Idris Elba As James Bond

One of the few–perhaps the only–non-gross things about the whole Sony email hacking debacle was the revelation that mega-dreamboat Idris Elba is pretty much the number one choice to play James Bond after Daniel Craig quits playing James Bond. I mean, I’ve never seen a James Bond movie, but Idris Elba is pretty much awesome…

This Week In Missing The Point, Starring Rush Limbaugh And Sean Hannity

Wealthy White Guys Rush Limbaugh and Sean Hannity demonstrated their ongoing obliviousness this week by completely ignoring everything that matters about issues like rape and child abuse, throwing out incredibly dumb red herrings on the issues instead.

Trans Woman Schools Rush Limbaugh On Trans Rights And Anal Sex (And He Kinda Listens!)

Listen, I’m not about to throw Rush Limbaugh a parade or anything, but perhaps for the first time in his life, the conservative shock jock actually let a critic get a word in edgewise. Via Jezebel, a trans woman named Tina called into Limbaugh’s radio show to criticize his coverage of TIME’s Laverne Cox/trans rights cover…

Oprah’s “Fat,” So Racism Can’t Be That Bad, Says Rush Limbaugh

While recently shopping in Zurich, Switzerland, a shop clerk refused to show Oprah Winfrey a purse because it was “too expensive.” But Rush Limbaugh wants to assure us all that this didn’t happen because of racism against Black women, but because Oprah is “fat.” [Media Matters For America]

Rush Limbaugh Says Ohio Kidnap Victims Are Part Of A Welfare Scheme, And It’s All Obama’s Fault

Sometimes terrible things happen, and they’re so unbelievably heinous, all you can do is gasp in horror. That’s the general response most of us have had to the harrowing story of Michelle Knight, Amanda Berry and Gina DeJesus — three women kidnapped, chained and held against their will in Cleveland, Ohio, for a decade. But…

Rush Limbaugh Thinks Beyoncé’s Song “Bow Down” Is About Submitting To Jay-Z

Today in Things Rush Limbaugh Grossly Misunderstands About America in 2013: he raved on his show about how Beyoncé’s new song “Bow Down” is an ode to wifely submission, praising her for doing a “total 180,” marrying her “rich” husband Jay-Z and “she now understands it’s worth it to bow down.” Now, had thi…

While trying to promote peace and justice throughout the United States, a Catholic social justice group called Nuns On The Bus have been threatened with a “pistol whipping.” On a radio show last week, host Jan Mickelson talked about the nuns recent protest of a conservative budget plan and asked his guest Rep.

Sandra Fluke Talks Sluts, Rush Limbaugh

[W]hat I’ve learned [after being called a “slut” by Rush Limbaugh on his show] has less to do with Mr. Limbaugh specifically and more to do with a part of our population that has this view. Because frankly, you don’t go on national radio and talk for several days about something that no one want…

Rush Limbaugh Adds Catholic Nuns to His Growing “Feminazi” List

During his (frighteningly) popular radio talk show on June 13, Rush Limbaugh didn’t hesitate to add Catholic nuns to his oh-so-scary list of “feminazis.” Limbaugh voiced his concern over the Vatican’s “doctrinal assessment” of the Leadership Conference of Women Religious (LCWR), where the Vatican had determined the LCWR to have “serious doctrinal problems” because they are promoting…

Women Who Go Into The Workforce Are Ugly, According To Rush Limbaugh’s Wildly Inaccurate Twisting Of Study

I’m fairly certain that Rush Limbaugh could take Goodnight, Moon and twist it into a tale of shrill harpies hellbent on John Bobbitt-ing the male species and strangling newborn babies with their long, flowing strands of armpit hair.

That is the only explanation for his wildly inaccurate (and, it should go without saying,…

The Real March Madness, Round Two: Rush Limbaugh Vs. Alana

After Round One of March Madness, it seems that our fair friend Rush Limbaugh trounced his conservo-pal Kirk Cameron. He beat Cameron in the crazy competition by nearly 6 to 1. Rush’s anti-woman, anti-slut diatribes now go up against our favorite honey boo-boo child, Alana, the Go-Go Juice chugging beauty pageant tyke from “Toddlers and…

The Real March Madness: Kirk Cameron Vs. Rush Limbaugh

In one corner we have Rush Limbaugh, the blowhardy conservative talk radio host who recently referred to law student Sandra Fluke as a “slut” because she wanted to testify on Capitol Hill about birth control.

Rush Limbaugh Broke An (Obscure) Florida Law Against Slut-Shaming

God bless Gloria Allred: the attorney has fired off a letter to the Palm Beach County Attorney’s Office to notify them that their most noxious resident, Rush Limbaugh, broke the law. (Again.) It turns out Florida has an obscure defamation statue classifying the “false and malicious questioning of a woman’s chastity” as a misdemeanor. Which,…

Girl Talk: I Use Birth Control For Health Reasons

One spring afternoon when I was in high school in New York City, I had a bizarre health scare. A friend and I had been lounging by the Hudson River pretending to read and philosophize but really gossiping about our schoolmates — acting exactly our age.

That afternoon, I had miserable symptoms as I alway…

Hey Rush Limbaugh, You Want Sluts? Here’s A Slut!

This lion Mary is a total whore. She had sex with both a tiger and lion and then gave birth to a tigon cub and a lion cub. It’s a world’s first! But obviously the important part is that this lion has two baby daddies. What. A. Slut.
